Pre-race routine:

Got to event early and parked far way from the start. Walked around the site a few times and got a bit bored waiting for rest of SLH to turn up.
Event warmup:

Ran a lap and a half around a medium sized field. Should have taken a bit more time to warm up and done some stretching ideally.
  • 1h 29m 38s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 06m 50s  min/mile

Struggled in places, found it hard ot settle down with a group of similar paced people found myself with new people every couple of miles. Overtook more then I got overtaken. Felt very weak at finish and was pretty much sick after I crossed the line. Wanted to beat 1.30 and managed to but only just. Had to work hard on last 1.1 mile to get inside my target.
What would you do differently?:

Develop a better warm up, get a thiner pair of gloves.
Post race
Warm down:

Changed into casual shoes and tried to jog around and tried to jog a little but the shoes were V. uncomfortable.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Me relying on other people to pace my run. Need to be more confident in my ability to run at a particular pace.
